Follow-up Comment #12, bug #52685 (project octave):

That makes sense to me.  One usually refers to an m-by-n matrix and not an
M-by-N matrix.  Although, all lower-case, "mxn" looks confusing.  But so does
"mXn".  Checking with the documentation for zeros from Matlab, they have opted
to use '-by-' between matrix dimensions so it is an m-by-n matrix.

Maybe put that up for a vote too on the Maintainer's list.  I have a Perl
script that I use for checking the style of the DOCSTRINGS and I could add a
regexp to change all dimensions to use the '-by-' syntax.
